ASK THE EXPERT: Cataract Correction Can Lead to Best Vision



Dr. Emilio Justo.jpgQuestion: What is a cataract?

Answer: It is inevitable that we will all one day be presented with these words: You have cataracts.

Once you learn that you are facing this rite of passage, you may realize that you have not been seeing light, colors and the world the way like you had in the past. Lights and colors are dimmed, you must get close to street signs to read them, the print on the TV is not clear and you cannot see the golf ball hit the green.

A cataract is the clouding of the eye's lens which sits just behind your pupil.

For most individuals, this clouding process is gradual and results from normal aging. There are more rapidly developing cataracts that do occur, particularly in those individuals using various steroid preparations and those who are diabetic.

Having cataracts can be an opportunity to make revolutionary changes to your vision that will impact your quality of life.

We are fortunate to live in an age when technology used for cataract surgery can be the best route to corrective eye surgery.

In many cases, your vision can ultimately be repaired to be the best vision you have ever had in your life, with painless outpatient laser cataract surgery. Lasers enable a level of precision that even the most talented surgical hand cannot.

Cataract surgery is an opportunity that opens the door to a new age of vision for you. There are a wide range of lens implants that can correct your vision — near and far — as well as astigmatism and ensures a higher level of freedom from eyeglasses.

Intraocular lenses can simultaneously restore near and far distance vision or pre-existing astigmatism.

If you have been diagnosed with cataracts — or fear you may get them — keep in mind that your diagnosis may actually be the opening for the best vision of your life.
